Contemporary processes of digital transformation are marked by the convergence of digital, biological and physical innovations that reshape society.
Such processes are marked by disruptive and emerging technologies, which blur the boundary between digital and physical worlds and ignite new (and radical) administrative reforms needed for rethinking and redesigning public governance.

This position is an exciting opportunity for co-developing and contributing to innovative public administration research aimed at generating new understanding of governance, policy, and public management responses to today’s contemporary challenges of digital transformation in the public domain, in interaction with stakeholders in the field.
Next to developing research in the above-mentioned areas the position has teaching responsibilities in public administration, policy studies and / or (international) public governance in various educational programs of our faculty, including the BSc Management, Society & Technology, BSc Public Governance Across Borders, the MSc Public Administration and the MSc European Studies.
